KANSAS CITY SIGNS OF COUNTRY CLUB PLAZA VIOLENT TEEN FLASH MOB PREVENTION PROGRESS?!?



Like it nor not, a great deal of effort today was dedicated to confronting the tragic situation on the County Club Plaza.

KCPD Chief Forté attempted to get the message across in no uncertain terms. The message in this KMBC report: The days of police "babysitting kids" on the Country Club Plaza are over.

Still . . . A bit of assurance about resources was required:



Other media featured the Chiefs message and plans for a Plaza crackdown that seems MUCH MORE STRICT than previous efforts.

Christa Dubill has a good interview this evening . . .



Take a look @ Alonzo Washington on Twitter and notice that he's reaching out the the youth involved in these altercations.

Mr. Washington's proposal at a solution is more holistic than most:



So . . . A crackdown is on and it's clear that even the hint of warmer weather focuses attention on the question of increased Kansas City violence stifling our local economy in ways that tax breaks and so much eco-devo work won't fix.

The hood doesn't need more cops. They've already got "Alonzo the Crimefighter."

I'm hopeful that the police will use video to show the behavior of those arrested prior to their arrest. This will do several things, 1) it will be evidence of the behavior 2) it will show the warnings being issued and #3) the most important point, it will show the race of those involved in this behavior and shut Alonzo and Jermaine up!!!

@6:18 nails it.

Well obviously Alonzo's strategy hasn't worked.

“Teens”, when I hear that word in the context of urban crime, I think what a wonderful euphemism it is. What color would I like the car? Do you have it in Teen with matching Teen interior? How do you take your coffee? Teen with no sugar.

Christa Dubill is bigger than that chair. Damn that girl is a cow. No wonder they use wide angle cameras when she is on TV. Moo Moo

I don't see anything new here folks!

Chief Forte said instead of taking the teens home, they would now require the parents to come and pick them up. Is this a JOKE?? WTF?

You make arrests....that's how you begin to put a stop to this BS!

Plaza merchants must be going nuts with the soft-handed approach. Have any of them threatened to break their lease?

You go Pootie, sometimes it takes a pimp to clean things up. Hell you could probably do better than Alonzo and Jermaine the Dwarf.

Anonymous said...

Damn right Pootie go down there a put a wu tang on their asses.

Pootie & the Perv live from the Plaza............ said...

Next we will have a revival at the Plaza. Pootie and Byron. They will call it The Pimp and the Perv, crime fighters extraordinaire.

Pimps get real nasty when you mess with their money. Could be a idea.

Westport Trucky said...

Why don't Alonzo patrol the hood?
I'll tell you why he don't. That idiot has no balls to back up his mouth with.

the Polar Bear said...

LOL Trucky, Alonzo patrol the hood. Hell Alonzo won't leave his moms house. Wait, that could be Tony too. Maybe Jermaine will come by and pick up Alonzo and the can patrol as "the Dynamic Duo", or "Dumb and Dumber", or "Black and Blacker".

Alonzo and Jermaine are part of the problem KC. A big part of the problem. With leaders like Alonzo and Jermaine it's easy to see why the black race has become the modern version of the plague. It still spread by rats. Hood Rats !

Im thinking Alonzo needs a super hero cape and costume to wear around fighting crime.

For the first time ever I agree with Alonzo.

How about Chief Forte stop the racism and treat the "teens" like he would whites doing the same thing?

These arrogant trouble makers, whether black or white, male or female should have a mandatory three day, in a cell, jail sentence with no cell phones, TV, Internet, play time or anything to pass the time.

They've been coddled for too long and presently, know there will be no significant consequences for what they do.

They won't like real jail time but maybe they won't do things to get arrested again when the sentence should be a week or ten days. Each similar offense should result in longer jail time.

If there's no room for them in the county facilities, let's board them out to counties that have room.

I'll bet the Plaza merchants and good law abiding people, from both sides of the state line, who frequent the Plaza would gladly pony up some money to have this done.

A stand has to be taken now or we'll someday soon just have mob rule.

You do realize that your talking about curfew violations? What are you going to charge the young adults with? Loitering?

Speaking of video, why aren't we seeing video of the lawlessness on the news? The stories from the plaza have dominated the news. Are they not going down there? If they are, are they not playing the videos out of political correctness? Are they waiting for juicy video of white police manhandling black "teens"?

Byron, I usually try to ignore you because responding to your blather derails the conversation, but this time I'll bite. I need you to understand something. Lawless, violent people have always been among us and always will. For decades here and centuries elsewhere, civilized people have empowered and expected law enforcement entities to deal with them. In recent history, liberals like yourself have deemed it fashionable to be the enablers and champions of the violent and lawless. All in an attempt to prove how compassionate and enlightened you truly are. Meanwhile, you personally never have to deal with savagery firsthand. You just read about it and pass judgment on those who try to keep it from spreading any farther.

Byron, you and liberals like you are complicit in the lawlessness and savagery that is eroding every major city in this country. I've come to hate you more than the savages because at least the savages have the courage to openly challenge us. Liberals hide behind civilization's protectors while stabbing them in the back to curry favor with civilization's enemies. I sincerely hope you live long enough to see firsthand the damage your soft heart and soft mind has done to our country. By firsthand, I mean that I hope you get to experience violent crime personally and not just continue to read about it and make excuses for the criminals.

Byron Funkhouser said...

They are not violent or lawless. They are congregating the way teens will. Sometimes teenage boys get into fights. Its testosterone.

Dividing Americans into liberal & conservative is mostly a false dichotomy. Just as dividing Americans into black & white is mostly a false dichotomy.

Its asinine to say that liberals are destroying the country. I know that you see commentary along these lines, but its profoundly simplistic reasoning. Just as its profoundly simplistic reasoning to say that blacks are destroying the country. One problem your reasoning is that our country is NOT being destroyed.

"Violent Flash Mobs" is a horrid exaggeration of what is really going on.

Byron Funkhouser said...

I've experience violent crime. Its nice of you to wish some more on me. I think that you all should just calm down a whole lot.

Wu Tang said...

This ones for you, Byron. This is what savages do when they figure out there are no consequences:

If there is no room for them in the jail make them do HARD LABOR or pick up trash along the highway and in neighborhoods. They complain there is nothing to do - give them something to do - put them to work!

6:18 good job

7:08 The merchants should break the leases and bail out. The management company is not holding up their end of the deal.

2:12 Many of the surrounding counties do not want baby hood rats. Many of the surrounding counties jails are not as nice compared to KC jails.


Another sad thought, many of these teens parents have had it with these kids/adults and leave them in jail to rot. If these unwanted arrested youth get some schooling in jail, that may be accredited, and that might actually be better than what they would be getting. So in a way, by getting these youth arrested, they may get some education or at least some GED training.

The real blame is in parenting. There are kids in the inner city that try and are good kids. Smart kids leap where they land, and they usually have good parents behind them.

Maybe I have spent too much time around the hood, but as they say, if you have good "home training" you do better.

I blame the parent (s) for this.

Shame, class and privilege all tie into this. It has the makings of a good story. Really, there are many layers here to explore. There isn't one film maker in KC that will touch this.

When will it all come to an end? When will the tipping point come? When will the plaza burn down?
When will someone die and become the poster child for plaza violence?

No one that works down in the plaza in the retail/hospitality sector deserves to be hurt trying to do their jobs. Customers don't need to die either.

We got all this j.j.'s stuff going on already...so thats the name of the game for the plaza...body count?

Here’s some things KC teens could do with their time: 1) their homework and studies 2) help elderly neighbors with house/yard chores 3) help their parent or parents around the house 4) volunteer for charity work 5) be big-brothers/sisters for younger kids acting as good role model 6) read some of the classic books 7) go to the library 8) study the bible 9) pick up and dispose roadside and neighborhood trash 10) exercise your body. There are lots of worthwhile activities to be be had if you look for them.
